Did you hear that from "monkey sponge" on Twitter by any chance?

2.) 15 Feb 2016 12:19:00
its in the Echo now too.

3.) 15 Feb 2016 12:25:34
Sakho he literally just said Sky Sports, not twitter. Sky Sports have just released this through there app and SSNHQ.

4.) 15 Feb 2016 12:43:33
Not surprised really because sahko is NOT boss.

5.) 15 Feb 2016 15:12:31
sorry mate I replied to somebody about liverpools interest in Leon Goretzka not about Matip joining Liverpool.

Yes yes yes! Thank you Jurgen and the owners! What an end to the season. We are the champions, champions of Europe. Enjoy the summer everyone, the premier league to follow I think. Ed 1, yes my friend, yes!

Exactly my thoughts too Ed1 mate, bloody hell after Origi's goal I went ape sh*t mate, I'd actually been out for a cig and when I came back in just as I was about to sit back down, he scored lol amazing, my god, just amazing! I aren't going to sleep tonight but bugger it, AJ fight soon, you only live once! I can't calm down after that, I'm so fkn over the moon. YESSS!



13 May 2019 19:22:24
One for ed1 I would guess. I was wondering where AOC is up to in terms of fitness. Obviously he was on the bench yesterday but only came on in the 88th minute. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to give him at least a 10-15 min run out, if he were to be on the bench for the final he would presumably benefit from some time on the pitch. He got about 20 mins I think the other week? I appreciate he is being eased back but 2 mins plus stoppage time seems a little pointless. I noted he wasn’t on the bench against Barca, does that imply he isn’t really being considered in a true game situation at the moment and perhaps therefore won’t make the bench for the final?

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - it depends on the options, but no he is not really ready.}

1.) 13 May 2019 20:14:28
Assuming a fully fit team, bar Keita, we could still have origi Sturridge Shaqiri Milner/ gini Gomez and migs on the bench.

I’d actually start matip in the final, with Gomez lacking match fitness and us being on such a run with matip starting.

2.) 13 May 2019 23:25:02
much stronger bench than last years final for sure.

3.) 14 May 2019 03:34:28
I’d be starting

Trent - Matip - VVD - Robbo
Hendo - Fabinho - Milner
Salah - Firmino - Mane

Bench :

Harsh on Gini and Gomez perhaps but I think we need the energy of Milner rather than the control of Gini, and Matip has proven most of us wrong and been really solid last few weeks. No need to risk a new CB pairing in the final. Shaq, Ox and Origi give us plenty of attacking options off the bench, no need for Sturridge.

4.) 14 May 2019 06:40:49
I agree with your team, give hendo the freedom to get forward and drag players away from salah. Salahs return to goals after his drought came from moment Henderson has been preventing him constantly being double marked.

Gini and Milner is a hard call but I love milners experience, if he plays towards the left he often sits in slightly giving robbo the freedom of the wing, him and mane could get real joy from a confidence sapped incapable trippier.

I feel our best approach is to play very wide. The first 45 mins at anfield we tore them apart attacking the wings until poch changed his system, I'm sure he won't start with the same approach but spurs lack genuine wingers so I feel their full backs can always be got at.

My one concern would be if fabinho would need a deep lying partner. Spurs got success in over running us beyond midfield in that second half, alli and Eriksson can hurt any team when picking the ball up between midfield and defence

It will be a great game no doubt and I hope people stop getting overconfident. Yes I back us and fancy us but we need to show more respect to a good spurs team playing the biggest game in their history.



10 May 2019 15:48:41
Ed1, wondered what your plan would be for the break between Sunday and the champs league final (feels so good to be even typing about that) . Would you send the lads off on a weeks holiday and get back down to business after that, or keep them training throughout and maybe try to arrange a few friendly, behind closed doors games? 3 weeks is a long time to dwell on such a big game and it’s plenty of time to lose all rhythm and fluency, seems like a tough period for the coaches and manager to deal with. Hopefully the experience of last year will count for something.

Lfc hopeful

{Ed001's Note - if it was me it would be a week's holiday and then get them down to training again.}

1.) 10 May 2019 16:43:01
They are talking about 5 day holiday for the players but no long haul flights by any of them then a warm weather training camp in Mabella or Majorca for a week then back to Melwood before leaving for Madrid on the Wednesday or Thursday before the game.

Don’t know about these warm weather training camps: they seem to come back sluggish. They do help with getting used to weather for Madrid though I suppose.

Spurs are supposed to be staying in London to train.

2.) 10 May 2019 21:49:45
This is my fear.

These holiday camps have not worked imo

I woukd get them playing 11 a side in competitive scenario.

Keep them game mode ready.

3.) 10 May 2019 22:44:48
Ed, what will you do during those two weeks? You won't be stressed out until the final will you?

{Ed001's Note - I will work on some new articles.}

4.) 10 May 2019 23:15:58
Every time we’ve had an extended break between games we’ve come back rusty. Especially the top end of the pitch as the little fluidity hasn’t been there. The little tricks and flicks that create the chances always seem to be slightly off. That’s my biggest concern but something inside me tells me the boys won’t let that happen this time. The pain of losing in 2 European finals coupled with our knack of finding a way to win against the odds this season will see us finally win a final for Klopp. These boys don’t know how to lose anymore. Think Spurs will feel the pressure more than us as they’re not accustomed to games of such magnitude. No doubt our fans will more than double theirs on the day making it feel like a home game. IMO it’s ours to loose because experience plus quality is on our side. Bring no 6 home boys. YNWA.



08 May 2019 22:15:50
Well played spurs, great heart and guts shown by them. If I’m honest I didn’t want to face them in the final, they’re a very good side especially in a one off scenario and Moura ha been on fire these last few weeks.

Lfc hopeful

1.) 08 May 2019 22:23:04
Agree, Lfc. Said a week or 2 back I didn't fancy playing them. Need a performance like last night to beat them. Call me old fashioned, but I just prefer to play foreign opposition in a CL final.

2.) 08 May 2019 22:25:06
Will be a tight game!

3.) 08 May 2019 22:49:37
As I said I don't enjoy Liverpool v Spurs games. I wanted Ajax to win the game tbh, I think the final would've been more entertaining for me. And no, not in the sense of we'd hammer Ajax, cos we wouldn't and that sort of thinking loses you matches. Just it'd be a better game.

They're a bit like us on the surface, positive coach (albeit not as good as Jurgen) and a lot of players who can power up and down the pitch for 90 minutes without wilting. But I think we have a bit more nous and craft about us, and they maybe have a bit more physicality: In terms of technique, Wanyama and Sissoko are rock trolls compared to someone like Fabinho, but they're still hard to play against. I also think they're too used to relying on Kane, and it takes a few games without him in the team before they get used to not having him and the others step up. Moura had a hat trick tonight, but where was he for the last 4 league games in which Spurs scored 1 goal? . Meanwhile, we lose first Bobby and then Salah, but score 7 goals in two games anyway.

Overall I think why I don't enjoy our games against them is that they're one of the few teams who on their day can match our highest level of workrate whilst still being able to play football. going to be tough and uncomfortable.

That being said, I'm still confident we'll triumph. Obviously they aren't as good as us over a whole season (20 odd points behind), but even at their best in a once off game where that gap will close a lot, I think we have that little bit extra.

4.) 08 May 2019 23:25:19
I agree something red. that was the matchup that I did not really want. I think we are clearly the better side at every position. However, it is really hard to beat a team 3 times. I like our chances though. As I said a few weeks ago, I'll be absolutely shocked if we do not raise the trophy. No disrespect to spurs at all, but we should win.

5.) 09 May 2019 00:45:07
Spurs rarely beat liverpool.

6.) 09 May 2019 08:39:15
Robbie, it only takes one, tho and it definitely cannot be in this final where Spurs win. I did not wan Spurs either cos they are a mirror-image of us based on the way we play and the intensity we play with. Ajax would have been tough BUT in a diff. way. Either way, there is a reason why Spurs almost NEVER beat LFC. We match up well against them even if we have the better team overall (better defence, better GK, better attack etc. ) BUT again, that guarantee a win in the final. We'll be ready for them, no doubt.

I think most people would agree (given all the comments we get in here) that our midfield is lacking, therefore I’d agree with Ed, a dominating midfielder like souness.

Lfc hopeful

1.) 04 Apr 2019 17:25:12
I don't think our midfield are lacking. They are industrious and tenacious. They can all tackle and they can all pass. The creativity comes from the front 3, the fbs and shaqiri, milner and lallana.

{Ed001's Note - Fabinho is creative too.}

2.) 04 Apr 2019 18:31:41
I hope we don't go for the Brexit midfield ever again. Gini, Milner n Hendo is painful at times. Love it When Fab is in there, I just think if we was in the CL final tomorrow though. He'd pick them 3.

3.) 04 Apr 2019 18:55:41
Er OP, is Fabinho not that dominant and creative (from deep) midfielder already?

4.) 04 Apr 2019 20:20:08
I didn’t realise how creative fab was but damn he has it all, he was even in double figures for goals when they got to the semis of the european cup.

5.) 04 Apr 2019 21:09:40
I was replying to another post where someone asked what player from the past would you choose to put in the current team. I would say that of all the positions, midfield is the weakest of all (not weak but lacking in compared to defence and attack) . Ed said souness would be the player he’d choose and I happen to agree with him. As great as the players we’ve had down the years, I would say he’s is the biggest improvement relative to his position 👍.

{Ed025's Note - excellent player of his time hopeful, sadly with his style of play he would be carded nearly every game these days and a lot of them would be red, he would make fernandinho look like judge rinder mate

6.) 04 Apr 2019 21:45:57
I'd quite like us to take a look at doucoure from Watford.

7.) 05 Apr 2019 09:42:35
True ed, fabhino has been a revelation this season. can't wait for him to score. He hasn't scored yet has he? Or keita. Is keita injured?

{Ed002's Note - Fabinho has scored. Keita is not injured.}

8.) 05 Apr 2019 09:43:24
The "brexit midfield" that took us tp the champions leagur final you mean?

9.) 05 Apr 2019 09:31:20
I agree with you Ed025, Souness would have to modify his game big time. However, after Salah went off in the CL final one of my first thoughts was I wish we'd have had him on the pitch just to see his reaction to Ramos. If he'd managed to stay on the pitch, his absolute desire to win may have made a difference too.

Fully agree hsf. Average league, at best. I wonder if he too is mates with Neymar, that went well for Phil after all. I do seem to recall ed1 saying Jesus was in the Brazil team ahead of bobby cause Neymar and him are best mates and he wanted him to start.

I said it a while ago, his interview post spurs game at Anfield was one of the most awkward things I’ve seen, his sole concern seemed to be home bring given that goal, it never sat right with me.

Trent has played in 2 champions league finals and a major part of a team that just got 97 points, with a ridiculous number of assists. You can’t compare him to maguire or Maddison.

I agree with the notion of not being bothered who we sign because quite frankly I trust the club, 99% of their signings in the last few years have been spot on. Who’d have thought a relegated midfielder and left back would prove so brilliant? I think we need a couple players to freshen up the squad and improve Klopps options, but how many and who- I have faith in the club to get right.
